    Is Disneyland flexible with employees who attend school?

    I've been thinking about applying for a job at Disneyland. I go to college about half an hour away and I was wondering if they have shifts flexible for school matters.

    yes i assume for a college student they would be.

    I'd go and apply and if they call you for an interview I'd let them know about the school thing and let them take it from there.

    No, most department schedulers are going with the "we don't schedule around school" BS... even though there is no such policy on paper. Schedulers are only saying that's "policy" because it makes their job easier, basically they are lazy and can't schedule correctly so they have to cop out and screw folks who are going to school.

    My department does schedule around school (I'm doing it this semester), because we're specialized and a pretty small department, but a lot of departments are not.

    Good Luck! In my area we have lost over 35 people who had to decide what was more important, School or their job at Disney. Many had to choose their education. It's hard to miss finales just because your scheduled a shift on a day your suppose to have off.

    Want more insight into the problem? Read the threads at :http://www.micechat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15550

    Re: Is Disneyland flexible with employees who attend school?

    Thanks. Well Im not from Southern Cali ... so I was thinking of maybe staying with family down in San Juan Capistrano and then work at Disneyland. Im currently living in Northern Cali. I really want to see what its like to work at Disney before I get into college and start studying hospitality / tourisim management. It might be a nice way to see if its something I really want to do.

    Well if dealing with people is what you want to do, now's the perfect time to get a job there. Disneyland has been a dense mass of people since the beginning of the 50th celebration and I've heard they're always in need of more cast members.

    With the new contract that's gonna make an appearance in March, they will make us choose between Disney and our education. (At least for stores).

    Re: Is Disneyland flexible with employees who attend school?

    They've worked with me well. If they schedule me against school, they CAN'T hold me to it for two reasons:

    1. It would not be a part of my CR requirements (after 1800 on Fri, fully available Sat/Sun)
    2. It would be against my availability.

    While #1 is valid (for now), #2 is not. An availability is a preference... preferences can be ignored currently due to business needs.
